Cute Critter Valentines - Simon Says Stamp Valentine Card Kit

Hello! I'm stopping by with a couple more cards I created using the stamp set from the BRAND NEW Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp Valentine Card Kit! These are completely one layer cards, thanks to the adorable big stamp set in the kit - The Sweetest - and a bit of masking, distress inking, and Copic coloring!


For these cards, I first stamped my images and sentiments from The Sweetest stamp set on white cardbases with Copic friendly ink, then stamped the images on masking paper and carefully cut them out to use as masks while i added my inking around the images.


For this first one, I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink:


For this one I used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink:


Once I added the ink and peeled off the masks, I colored the images up with Copic markers. I decided to mask first, so that if I messed up the inking I wouldn't waste the time used to color up the images.


As a final finishing touch, I added some details with a white gel pen! Just what they needed to add a bit of brightness and shine to these adorable images!


Here is a look at everything in the kit - it is jam packed! You can find it HERE:

Bear-y Best Birthday - Technique Tuesday

Good morning! I'm popping by this morning to share a card I made a little while back with a couple of the newest Technique Tuesday stamps and dies! 


This little card ended up being nearly one layer. I started off by stamping the bear from the new Bobbi the Bear, and then stamping him again on masking paper, carefully fussy cutting out, then attaching over the top of the bear on my card base so I could add some ink blending behind him! I also used some tape along the bottom to mask a "ground" and added some white paint splatters before removing my mask.


I added just a touch of color to the bear with pink and gray Copic markers, then stamped, colored, and fussy cut out the gift from Love is in the Air to mount with foam so it looks like the bear is holding the gift. Finished off with that perfect sentiment stamped underneath!

Simple Valentine Gift Set - Simon Says Stamp Valentine Card Kit

Hello! I'm stopping by tonight to share a fun set of Valentine's I created using the BRAND NEW Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp Valentine Card Kit


Here is a look at everything in the kit - it is jam packed! You can find it HERE:


I used some of the adorable pre-printed Pebbles Icons, Patterned Paper, and the mini stamp set to create a sweet little set of Valentines! SOOO super fast and easy!


I trimmed down the pattern paper to slightly larger than the Neenah notecards in the kit, then adhered them to both the front and back - so that leaves space on the back to write a sweet little note! And since the pattern paper is double sided, they look cute on the back as well!


And the super cute red drawstring bag in the kit is the PERFECT size to tuck them all into! So they are easy to gift or transport! :)


I particularly love the cute sloths in the kit - can you tell based on how many of them I used? Heehee!

You Have My Heart - Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge

Good morning! Stopping by with a card this morning for this month's Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge - the fun monthly challenge at Reverse Confetti!


This month's theme is Love is in the Air:


I had fun using the new adorable Heart Pals set in a different and creative way! I started off by heat embossing one of the cute images and sentiments in white on some Stormy cardstock, then die cutting with the coordinating Heart Pals Confetti Cuts.


For a background, I blended two colors of distress oxide ink over a panel I had die cut with Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel. I added a frame die cut from All Framed Up Cofetti Cuts, then layered everything together with a bit of foam adhesive!


Here are the Reverse Confetti products I used on this card - click on the picture if you want to learn more about any of these items!

LID January Release Day 3 - Hugs and Love

Hello! Welcome to the final day blog hop of the BRAND NEW January release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such fun products in this release - totally full of love and Valentine's Day goodness! You can find the entire new release HERE!


I have two more cards to share with you today using the new release - and a few great items from previous releases! Today I'm using the new Bear Hugger Die and Stamp Bundle (with a bit of a twist to show another way to use it!), the Perfect Pairs Additions Stamp Set, Quilted Stitched All Heart Die, and Sending My Love Word Die!


First up, I wanted to use the darling new Bear Hugger for a card, but unless I wrapped them around something, the arms were just too long for what I wanted on my card front. So...I did some partial die cutting to shorten those arms up! So make note - this is not how the die cuts on it's own, but it is SUPER easy to trim those arms down. I wanted to do a video - and may still post a quick one on my Instagram sometime soon - cause it's a little hard to explain with words, but would take a few seconds to show how in a video. 


I used a plaid background stamped with Cozy Plaid (from the last release in December), and mounted the bear on an aqua oval die cut with Stitched Mats: Ovals, and added a heat embossed sentiment underneath using Perfect Pairs Additions stamp set.


And continuing on with the same color combo apparently - a nice simple card up next!


For this card, I die cut the front of my card using Quilted Stitched All Hearts Die, and added a few black splatters with my Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolors. In hindsight, I wish I'd added just a few less splatters, but it still added a fun bit of texture to the cardfront, so I just decided to go with it.


I die cut the Sending My Love Word Die from aqua cardstock, and mounted that over the front for a nearly one layer card - nice and flat and easy to mail!


This photo shows the texture a little closer and better - I'm especially loving the new Quilted Stitched All Heart Die!

LID January Release Day 2 - All the Hearts

Hello! Welcome to the second day blog hop of the BRAND NEW January release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such fun products in this release - totally full of love and Valentine's Day goodness! You can find the entire new release HERE!


I have two cards to share today - both featuring hearts and lots of pink! I'm using two products in particular that are made to coordinate perfectly together, but also work very well on their own - the Perfect Palette Heart Cover Die and Heartthrob Stamp Set!


For this first card, I used the Perfect Palette Heart Cover Die. Once I removed all the hearts, I blended two different colors of distress oxide ink over the top and bottom edges for an ombre effect. I then used it to place just the alternating stitched dies behind their respective windows on my white cardbase, then popped that front panel up with foam adhesive.


I then die cut the beautiful With Love Word Die from gray cardstock and white cardstock and layered them together for a slightly sturdier embellishment. I added some detail with a white gel pen to make them look a little more dimensional, then after wrapping some twine around my cardfront, I attached the sentiment with a touch of foam adhesive and tied my bow around the first letter to make it look like it was tied on.


I absolutely love this soft color combo of white, pink, and gray!


For the next card, I used the fun and graphic Heartthrob Stamp set to create a super clean and simple design!


Want to know the secret for how I lined these hearts up so perfectly? I actually die cut one corner of the Perfect Palette Heart Cover Die from a piece of scrap paper, trimming it so that I had just the window for four hearts. I lined it up on the front of my card, holding it in place with removable tape. Once I used it as a window to stamp the hearts in place, I removed it and stamped my sentiment underneath!


I used the solid half of the hearts from Heartthrob to stamp in a softer pink color, then three of the different stylized elements to stamp in a deeper shade of pink. I love the graphic feel this gives!


I'm always a sucker for a good CAS card - I feel like they are a little tough for me to pull off, so I'm always happy when I find a design like this that I like!
